Jean Ducrollay is recorded as goldsmith in Paris from 1734 to 1770 and was one of the most renowned makers of gold boxes in Paris. He was born in 1709 and from 1722 on he apprenticed with his uncle Jean Drais; he became a master in 1734. Ducrollay had a workshop together with four other famous goldsmiths: his brother Jean-Charles Ducrollay, their nephew Thomas Estienne, Louis Roucel and Pierre-Francois Drais. The artists owned a book with a number of different designs that is today kept in the Victoria and Albert Museum. The book was not only a source of inspiration for new designs but also used to show the different kinds of snuff boxes to wealthy clients. Records show that Ducrollay also produced gold boxes for the court of King Louis XV, one of which was presented to the ambassador of the Holy Roman Empire in 1757. Ducrollay retired to Mantes in 1770 and died in 1787.
His work can today be seen in many important museums and collections such as the Wallace Collection, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Louvre in Paris.
